Payback Time

BBC: "Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott has apologised after admitting council tax bills for one of his official homes were paid with taxpayers' money."

He said:
Let me make this clear as mustard for all you journalisers as ‘appen it shouldn’t be mistook in those papers what you write it all up in. It was an inadvertable miscontention which any one of we could make at any time of the day or night, or thereafter under set circumstances and only under official guidelines laid down as of which I now know. I contend to reimpurse the entotal amount, and that’s all I’m saying on the matter of fact. It’s all press prattle and I won’t be badly drawn about it any further.”
